Brian Murphy signs short term contract

Last updated : 28 August 2019 By Michael Morris

Brian Murphy has signed for Cardiff City until the end of the year to cover while Neil Etheridge is injured.

He will become third choice keeper and use his time back at the club to help out on the training ground and at the Academy. Murphy's previous contract with the Bluebirds ended in the summer.


When asked about the signing Neil Warnock said

'The thing was, we don't know about Neil Etheridge at the moment. We let George (Ratcliffe) go out on loan to Barry and he's done excellent. And I think it's more important he gets games at Barry than come back to be number three or four keeper. So I'm just pleased with him getting games.

'So we talked about Murph, you know, short term until December, which will just help us out on the training ground and I think Murph is also going to help the academy as well, do some coaching down there which, he's a really good professional, so it was a no-brainer really.'
